About NorCal Purps
Despite having two very well-known parents, NorCal Purps is a little bit mysterious in the cannabis world. Hailing from California as the child of Sal Robles, she also goes by the name NCP. As a cross between Grape Ape and Granddaddy Purple, this little lady offers up big flavors and a set of effects that most find to be incredibly welcoming after a long day at the office. Clear your calendar and stock your fridge, because it’s going to be quite an adventure with this little lady.
It’s unclear just how potent NorCal Purps can be, as Sal Robles isn’t exactly the easiest to track down. If we had to make an educated guess, we’d bet that she’s on the higher side of things based upon user reports. Nugs tend to be huge and noticeably purple in color, with glistening trichomes accenting her dense structure. As one would guess, flavors and aromas of grape come across in a big way, making your mouth water before you even take a toke. Many recognize hints of wood as they smoke, providing a bit of a contrast to her mostly sweet profile.
Most strains that have some sativa in their genetics offer a bit of a cerebral burst upon smoking before bringing users down into a state of relaxation, but NorCal Purps doesn’t often act this way. Instead, many note that her high is pretty heavy from the outset, and while you’ll certainly feel happy after you indulge, your attention will instead be focused on how sedated you probably are. The kicker is that along with getting to finally settle down at the end of a long day, you’ll also likely feel intensely hungry. We’d recommend getting snacks ready ahead of time, and make sure to prepare more than you think you’ll need.
So far NCP sounds pretty great, but here’s where the good news ends. As is often the case when breeders choose to remain somewhat anonymous, seeds of this powerful gal don’t seem to be available anywhere. If you absolutely have to have her in your home garden, your best bet is to head to California and visit as many dispensaries as you possibly can. Many times being able to grow the strains you want comes down to who you know, so start making friends fast!
In the event that you’re only able to enjoy NorCal Purps on the couch instead of growing her yourself, consider inviting your friends over and see if you can get creative with some snacks before you toke. Sometimes the longest of days requires a potent strain to end the night, and if you’re into Purple strains that offer bold effects, NCP is certainly the way to go.
